Your festival event guide for the Knoxville, Tennessee Area, including Anderson, Blout, Knox and Sevier Counties.

Welcome to a comprehensive festival listing page and guide for Knoxville, Tennessee and the greater area. Once area festivals are confirmed on the main Tennessee Festival Schedule, they are copied over to this page to make it easier to plan your weekend festival adventures. Please keep in mind that you should not see area festivals that have been canceled or have not yet been confirmed.

Other areas of Tennessee with a Festival Schedule Page are Memphis and Nashville.

Otherwise, for other areas of the state or all of Tennessee, please refer back to the Tennessee Festival Schedule.

Festivals listed here include music festivals, art festivals, food festivals, town festivals, church festivals, cultural festivals and more, but they do not include craft shows, machinery shows, bazaars, county fairs and some other events. Feel free to contact me if you have a question about your event.

CORONAVIRUS UPDATE

While I am doing my best to update festival postponement dates, cancellations or note alternative versions, some festivals listed as going on may have been canceled or changed without my knowledge.

Always check festival information before attending as things are constantly changing and I know what it’s like to arrive at a festival location and find nothing.

Stay strong, be safe and let’s festival on together!
